What happened here
As the New York sunset disappeared
I found an empty garden among the flagstones there
Who lived here
He must have been a gardener that cared a lot
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop
And now it all looks strange
It's funny how one insect can damage so much grain
" I don't look back when I'm playing that song - if I see the footage of John, I get choked up and it's too hard to get through the song. I miss him so much. He was a force of nature, and you don't get many of those. And you sure as hell miss them when they leave."
The song is Elton shouting "Hey Hey Johnny, Can't you come out to play in your empty garden" and about Elton knocking at his door with no reply. When preforming this at concerts he has to look the audience the whole time or else he fears he'll burst out into tears and can't go on. Just shows you how big of an impact John Lennon has on not only fans but on other musicians. He will be forever known and loved and remembered for the ways he's changed this world. Rest in Peace John Lennon.
Johnny can't you come out to play in your empty garden
